Mission

Survivors Project, Inc is a nonprofit organization sharing true stories about survivors of domestic violence and raising money for a legal fund to help break down two common barriers to safety: silence/isolation and finances. We give voice to those who have been silenced by shame and fear, provide resources, and eradicate societal stigmas. 

Some content may not be suitable for young readers. These are real stories of abuse told from those who survived, or those who continue the fight for justice for those who did not. 

Vision

Survivors Project will be at the forefront of changing the perception of domestic violence victims and survivors while creating a space for support and community.
